The original version of the remix, a bonus track on The Blueprint 1, didn't use the sample. They had some girls sing the part.



I doubt if that mixtape is actually up for sale anywhere that the money is getting to Kanye West at all.

I don't think they it holds any grounds. Didn't the original version College or some other Asher Roth song sample Weezer on a mixtape? I remember my friend playing it, and I was like wtf, that's Weezer, and the "official" versoin didn't sample it.

Yeah, I think they asked and Rivers wouldn't let him use it on the album. So they just wrote a similar guitar part.

I wasn't aware you needed permission to sample things on a mixtape.

it was just the arrogance of "some of us have to work" that didn't make sense.

to stay on topic, i hope this guy doesn't get any money. if it was on a mixtape, no one is making money.

Seems like a thin case. If he didn't make any money directly from it, how much can he be charged for?

He used to produce beats for Jay Z, why the fuck would he sue him - I thought they were close.
You clearly didn't read the article.

I'm pretty sure if the mixtape was free they don't have a leg to stand on in the case. Frivolous.

As far as I know, this is not the case. I believe it's illegal to use copyrighted work w/o permission, regardless if the aim of infringement is to make money.

Correct. Non-commercial use would just be a factor to consider if Kanye asserts a fair use defense. Though it seems he's getting sued for selling it on Amazon, not for sampling it on a mixtape.
